this was definitely a black diamond, but also a very very good guide. I followed it step by step and it worked

thinking about how if I have a feature phone that doesn't have a quality camera

in the book “Reverse Hallucinations in the Archipelago”, about the legacies of colonial naturalists in Southeast Asia, I learned that many birds of paradise became endangered due to a trend in the UK at the time of putting birds of paradise feathers on hats
feels similar to me in some ways too. finding the feathers beautiful shows some recognition of appreciation, but missing the essence, that being a living being is ultimately the source of its beauty and is incompatible with being a hat
also not sure if this trend was before that or continued after, that’s just when I remember seeing it
